This past weekend marked the start of National Nurses Week, and with that, StoryCorps bring you the story of Brandi Lowe.
For most of Lowe's career, she’s been both a nurse and a patient. At 22 she was diagnosed with an autoimmune deficiency. Because of the deficiency that last summer she contracted a very rare – and potentially fatal – fungal infection in her lungs and respiratory system.
At the StoryCorps Atlanta booth, Lowe spoke with her older sister Lee Ann Gamble about the four life-themes she’s focused on since receiving that diagnosis.
This story was recorded in partnership with the Atlanta History Center, which hosts Atlanta's StoryCorps Booth.
